It's been quite some time since Real Madrid last played a La Liga match, but they wait will end today as Los Blancos travel to Anoeta to face Real Sociedad. Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Modric, Benzema and Keylor Navas will all miss the game, meaning that Zidane has some decisions to make about who will replace those starters.
According to reports from Spain, Kovacic and Vázquez are set to start, meaning that Isco, James and Asensio could all sit on the bench. Zidane said during the prematch press conference that Asensio is Cristiano Ronaldo's first replacement, so it would not make much sense to sit him on the bench tonight and it would prove that one man out of those three attacking midfielders has to leave the club in order to get relevant minutes.
Morata has a fine chance to start upfront and prove that he can be Real Madrid's starting striker, as Benzema will still need some time to recover from his hip injury.
Location: San Sebastián, Spain.
Kick-off time: 08:15 PM CET, 02:15 PM Eastern, 11:45 AM Pacific
